FIG. 1 depicts an example of a user interface 102 for managing a customer's web presence, such as for establishing a web presence via a guided workflow in accordance with various embodiments of the present invention. Methods and systems to provide guided workflows to a customer are also depicted in and described in association with FIG. 1. The methods and systems may include a user interface 102 that may be configured to allow the customer to manage a customer web presence. In an example, a user interface 102 may allow a customer to manage a customer's web presence 118 based on operation of a logic engine 110 that accesses information about what the customer has done (e.g. current web presence 118) and who the customer is (e.g. customer data 124 that may include the customer's type of business). The user interface 102 may present a guided workflow of tasks associated with a recommended area of improvement for the customer. The recommended area of improvement may be related to an aspect of the customer's web presence.

A web presence 118 may include a variety of areas 112 that may be analyzed by a logic engine 110 to determine which area(s) 112 may be improved by applying a guided workflow 108. Determining one or more areas for improvement may be based on a variety of factors including a threshold associated with an area, a model of continuous or progressive improvement of a web presence, comparative ranking, area popularity, a measure of change already made to the area, and the like. In an example of threshold-based determination, each web presence area 112 may be compared to an improvement threshold 114 to determine which area(s) 112 exceed the threshold. These areas may be considered to be acceptable (or at least not necessarily in need of improvement) and therefore other areas that do not satisfy the threshold 114 may be further evaluated for improvement. In an example of a model of continuous or progressive improvement, areas of web presence and/or their impact on a user's web presence may be evaluated periodically or over a period of time so that the user's web presence can be improved by applying a series of improvement steps. A user's web presence may be evaluated for improvement based on its position in a ranked list, and the like. Successive improvement steps may include improving different web presence areas, determining a web presence area for improvement based on previous improvement steps, and the like. In an example of a determining a candidate are for improvement 104 based on a measure of change already made to an area, a record of improvement attempts to any area or a range of related areas may be consulted. If the record indicates that an area has been through an improvement cycle recently, further attempts at improvement in the area may be deferred to allow the improved area time to have an improving impact. In an example of comparative ranking, similar web presence areas from a plurality of users (e.g. similar users) and/or the improvement attempts made to those areas may be compared to compare the improvement efforts for a current user to the plurality of users. If several users had improvements in two different web presence areas, the area that resulted in the greatest improvement might be selected as a candidate area 104 for improvement. In another example of comparative ranking, areas of web presence may be grouped into related sets (e.g. communication, content, metadata, social networking, and the like) may be evaluated for determining the one or more for which the user needs most improvement, such as relative to others in the same industry. This might be based on a ranking of the customer's web presence to its peers. A set of areas in which the user is ranked lowest among peers may signify that improvement in one of the related areas in the set could be beneficial. In an example of area popularity-based determination, data regarding similar customers may be analyzed to determine which web presence areas are popular to help pinpoint one or more areas to improve. Areas that are least popular may not be as likely to improve a user's web presence as areas that are more popular.

For any given area 112 needing improvement, called a web presence improvement candidate 104, the logic engine 110 may evaluate a variety of data sources, analysis results, and the like to determine at least one recommended work flow 108 for improving the candidate 104. The logic engine 110 may access data such as user data 124 that may include information about a particular customer for whom a recommendation regarding an area of improvement may be prepared. The logic engine may also access customer data 124 for other customers, such as other customers for whom the logic engine 110 has provided web presence improvement workflows 108, and the like. The logic engine may access data representing any number of different customers to facilitate determining a workflow 108 for improving a candidate web presence area 104. Customer data 124 may include customer data for a variety of web hosting customers, including former web hosting customers. The logic engine 110 may be configured to access information about the customer including customer activities such as, for example, but not limited to, customer business, customer profile information, and the like to determine a recommended area of improvement for the customer's web presence.

The logic engine 110 may further access a customer's current web presence 118 and information about the customer such as who the customer is, market information about the customer, existing web presence areas, and the like. A customer's web presence may be supplemented with information about the customer that is accessible through Internet search engines and the like. Other sources may include industry directories, corporate registrations, government records, and the like. The logic engine may combine this customer web presence-related information with the customer information 124 when determining a recommended workflow 108 for improving a candidate web presence area 104.

A guided workflow 108 may be derived from a sequence of workflow tasks (108A, 108B, 108C, etc). The tasks and relationships among the tasks, such as which tasks must precede other tasks, and which tasks are candidates for executing subsequent to execution of a given task may be stored in a workflow task library 120 that may be accessible to the logic engine 110. The logic engine 110 may access the library 120 to select a task based on the improvement candidate area 104, the customer data 124, the current web presence 118 and other information. The logic engine 110 may use the task relationship information to identify candidate tasks and/or conditional tasks to be included in the guided workflow 108 to be presented on the user interface 102. The library 120 may have a variety of tasks that help on a particular area of web presence. Those tasks may be undertaken in more than one possible sequence, such that at any given point, a next task may be selected by the logic engine 110 that contributes to an improved web presence. The customer might complete all tasks presented in a guide workflow, or might just do one of the tasks, but in either case the result of executing the guided workflow is that the web presence should be improved. The logic engine may identify a next task based on a variety of factors including being based on where the customer is in the web presence improvement process. In an example, if the user has indicated a budget for improving web presence and the user has taken web presence improvement tasks in one or more guided workflows that substantially consume the entire available budget, the logic engine may present a low or no cost web presence improvement task. Alternatively, the logic engine may provide an indication of the use of the budget and give the user the opportunity to close out the web presence improvement process, increase the budget, or the like.

In an alternate embodiment, a guided workflow may be based on an amount of time that the user has available for improving web presence during a particular web presence improvement session. In an example, the customer may be asked about how much time is available so that tasks that can improve the user's web presence in a given amount of time are recommended. Further in the example, a user might have five minutes available, which might give enough time to add the customer's contact information to a page. If the user indicates that an hour might available, the logic engine may present web presence improvement tasks that enable setting up links among pages, creating search engine metadata, connecting to a social networking site, and the like.

A guided workflow 108 may also be based on criteria and templates of web presence objects/elements that may be stored in a web presence objects dataset 122. Web presence objects dataset 122 may also include information about web presence areas, improvement thresholds, and the like that may be used by the logic engine 110 to select web presence improvement area candidates 104.

The logic engine 110 may combine and analyze input from the various sources described herein to generate content and/or guidance for display and/or interactive presentation of a guided workflow on user interface 102. In an example, the logic engine 110 may determine a plurality of candidate areas of web presence improvement 104. The candidates 104 may be further filtered by reviewing customer data 124 (e.g. web hosting service level) and combining with an analysis of a user's current web presence 118 to determine at least one candidate area 104 for improvement. The selected area for improvement can be presented to the user through the user interface 102 along with at least one guided workflow 108 for improving the candidate web presence area 104. The guided workflow 108 may, when executed, result in an improvement in the candidate area 104 such that the area 104 is no longer below the improvement threshold 114.

An exemplary flow of steps that are processed by the logic engine 110 is shown in FIG. 1A. In the example, an area of improvement is recommended; a guided workflow is selected; the guided workflow is presented to the user and user input is integrated with the guided workflow to create a script for adding/improving the recommended area of improvement; the script is executed and the user is notified of the completion of the web presence improvement. The particular example of FIG. 1A involves a user's web presence being evaluated by logic engine 110, which starts with the logic engine 110 gathering the status of the user's web presence areas 132. The status of a customer's web presence in areas such as email account, address on home page, URL auto-renew, search engine data, site security, social network and the like is gathered to facilitate recommending an area of improvement. In the particular example of FIG. 1A, email account, address on home page, and social network all appear as potential candidates for improvement based on the status that each has not yet been completed by this client.

The logic engine exemplary flow of FIG. 1A continues with the logic engine 110 comparing the user's web presence status with peers 134 (e.g. similar entities, industry peers, web hosting customers who have a similar web presence, etc) to determine which of the three candidate areas of improvement might yield the greatest value. In this example, the logic engine 110 determines that the difference in counts of peers with email and with an address on the home page versus those without is greater than difference in counts of peers with a social network presence and those without. Therefore, the email account web presence area and the address on home page web presence area persist as candidate improvement areas.

The logic engine exemplary flow of FIG. 1A continues further with the logic engine comparing the candidate improvement areas with industry metrics 138 regarding the areas. Exemplary industry metrics include page rank, market capitalization, on-line sales growth rate, and the like. The logic engine may determine the potential benefits of including and address on the homepage for these metrics versus having no address on a homepage. Likewise the logic engine may determine the differences in these metrics for users who have an e-mail account versus those users do not have an e-mail account. The logic engine may further determine whether making improvement in the e-mail account web presence area or the address on home page web presence area will be the most likely to provide the greatest increase in metrics for the user. In the particular example of FIG. 1A, the e-mail account web presence area is determined to show the greatest potential for increased metrics. The logic engine may therefore recommend 140 adding an e-mail account for the user.

Logic engine 110 may then recommend adding an e-mail account for the user. Subsequently the logic engine may identify 142 a guided workflow that is suitable for adding an e-mail account to a user's web presence. Determining the proper guided workflow may include accessing data such as user data 124, web presence templates 122, workflow library 120, and the like as described in the embodiment of FIG. 1. The logic engine may present 144 the guided workflow to a user in a user interface. The user may input customization information such as a username password, and the like that the guided workflow made requests through the user interface. Logic engine may execute guided workflow 148 based the user inputs to generate a script that is suitable for adding the e-mail account.

The script for adding e-mail account may be executed A50 by the logic engine or another suitable Web server or computer. The result may include the user receiving a welcoming e-mail message in the newly added e-mail account. The script may also include configuring a user's web browser with a favorite for accessing the user's email. Likewise the script may include configuring a user's email program, such as OUTLOOK® or APPLE MAIL® to properly access the newly established user's email account.

We note that the term “web presence” described herein may be defined as a persona, an identity, and/or a communication medium of the customer, as well as the underlying content, such as pages, URLs, email addresses, and the like, that embody or create the identity or persona. The web presence described herein may include at least one of the electronic communications medium such as email, video conferencing, electronic chatting, instant messaging, and the like; website, domains such as domain names, URLs, and similar indication of location and identity or persona; presence on social networking sites, communication streams such as Facebook® or Twitter® and other web-related elements. The term “web” described herein may define the fixed Internet, wireless Internet, and mobile web such as enabled by Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP), Wireless Application Protocol (WAP), Wi-Fi, Wi-Max, and the like.

The customer described herein may include, for example, but not limited to, at least one of a customer, a reseller, an affiliate, a customer of a customer, a domain registrar, a web services provider, a cloud services provider, a network services provider, an online services provider, an Internet service provider, an online advertiser, a campaign manager, and the like. In an aspect, the logic engine 110 may be configured to interact with the databases, such as 120, 122, and 124, to determine the guided workflow of tasks, such as the workflow task 108, associated with the recommended area of improvement for the customer.

The guided workflow 108 may include a decision tree that may allow the customer to choose one or more paths. Alternatively, the paths available to a user may be limited based on context and other input data variables as described herein. The paths described herein may include for example, but not limited to, a most traveled path by a customer type, a most successful path traveled by other customers, an easiest next path, path based on customer activities, and the like. Path conditionality and determination may further be based at least in part on the status of a customer issue ticketing process that is associated with the customer. The ticketing process may resolve the customer issues through the guided workflow of tasks. The process may include a discrete element that may be kicked off and tracked around the guided workflow of tasks. The guided workflow may be associated with the market of the customer.

Methods and systems including a central command center 202 for presenting various options to a customer to facilitate managing the customer's web presence through the user interface 102 are depicted in FIG. 2. The central command center 202 may allow the host to present options to the customer to allow the customer to manage the customer's web presence. The central command center 202 may be operationally coupled or associated with the logic engine 110 to access and process information about the customer activities and provide a recommended workflow of tasks associated with an area of web presence improvement. The command center 202 may communicate with the databases such as 120, 122, and 124, as described in association with FIG. 1 in association with the logic engine 110 to provide a recommended guided workflow of tasks associated with an area of web presence improvement for the customer.

In particular, the embodiment of FIG. 2 depicts a central command center for allowing a host to present options to a customer to allow the customer to manage the customers' web presence, wherein the command center is associated with one or more of (A) a logic engine that accesses information about what a customer has done and who the customer is (e.g. customer's type of business) and provides a recommended workflow of tasks associated with an area of web presence improvement for the customer; (B) one or more platforms for enabling elements of web presence; (C) an abstraction layer that allows the host to manage web presence enabling elements in a unified user interface independent of a native language of a platform; and (D) a host API module that takes input from the abstraction layer and initiates actions on the platform to enable the web presence. The abstraction layer may further include a user interface that may permit a host to enter business rules for establishing and/or executing workflows associated with the customer's web presence.

The central command center 202 may be configured to be coupled to or associated with one or more web presence enabling platforms 204 through an abstraction layer 208 and a host application programming interface API 212. In an aspect, each web presence enabling platform 204 described herein may be a platform of a web hosting provider, a platform of a third party, a social media platform, an online campaign platform, or the like. Each web enabling platform 204 may facilitate providing certain web presence elements 218. Through interactions between the central command center 202 and the web presence enabling platform 204 (e.g. via an abstraction layer 208), web presence element(s) 218 associated with the enabling platform 204 may be enabled in a user's web presence 118.

The web enabling platforms 204 may communicate with the command center 202 via the abstraction layer 208 that may facilitate managing web presence enabling elements in a unified user interface that is independent of the native language of the platforms 204. The abstraction layer may facilitate data reformatting, data translation, language and other translation, standardization of web presence element attributes or definitions, normalization of data and web presence related elements, and the like.

Communication among the web presence enabling platforms 204 and the central command center 202 may be further enabled by an application programming interface (API) 212.

The API 212 may receive abstracted web presence enabling platform 204 communications from the abstraction layer 208 and may interface the abstraction layer 208 with the central command center 202 and/or the logic engine 110. In a similar way, the API 212 may facilitate initiating actions on the platform 204 for enabling web elements, such as by sending information, data, queries, commands, and the like from the logic engine 110 and/or the central command center 202 to the web presence enabling platforms 204. The API 212 may optionally communicate with the web presence enabling platforms 204 via the abstraction layer.

The central command center 202 may be configured to be coupled to or associated with an abstraction layer 208 that allows the host to manage web presence enabling elements in a unified user interface independent of the native language of the platform 204. The abstraction layer 208 may implement or include the operations or functions performed by the central command center 202. The abstraction layer 208 may include or implement a user interface (UI) 210 that may allow the host to manage establishing and/or maintaining business rules for establishing workflows to manage the web presence enabling elements for the customer.

In a general embodiment, the central command center 202 may allow a host (not shown) to present options to a customer to allow the customer to manage the customer's web presence. The central command center 202 may be associated with one or more web element enabling platforms 204 to facilitate enabling particular elements of web presence for the customer.

In another example, a new web hosting client may receive a customized profile-based wizard 302 in response to purchasing at least one of service from such as the web domain, a hosting service package, and the like. The information gathered during the purchase activity may be sufficient to enable the logic engine 110 to generate a workflow 108 for the customized profile-based wizard 302 to enable generating the customized web presence 304.

FIG. 4 depicts a diagram illustrating generally, among other things, an example of a data structure 400 that may facilitate creating a web presence for a customer. The data structure 400 may be configured to store and organize information such that the information can be instantly used by a logic engine to create the web presence of the customer. The data structure 400 may be configured to include information about the type of business 402, information about status of web-presence items 404, and information about the business desires for web presence 408. The information stored in the data structure 400 may be related to and/or may define the business requirements for the web presence of a business, and the like.

Methods and systems for providing web presence improvement recommendations to a customer are depicted in FIG. 5. Information about a customer, such as a type of customer, status of web presence items of a customer, desires for web presence, and the like may be used to provide web presence improvement recommendations to the customer. In particular, the method of FIG. 5 depicts a method of (i) collecting information about the status of what web-presence related items a customer has completed and information about the type of customer; (ii) comparing the completed items to a set of items completed by similar customers; (iii) and recommending a next action for the customer to modify its web presence. Customer related data stored in a dataset 400 described elsewhere herein facilitates determining the status of web presence related items. The status of these web presence related items for other customers could also be determined (e.g. from each customer-specific reference in the dataset 400). A subset of all customers may be selected for comparison with the specific customer's web presence status. This subset may be similar customers wherein the similarity is based at least in part on the type of customer 402, and the like. Once a subset of similar customers is identified, the status of each customer's web presence items may be evaluated to determine at least one web presence element for recommending to the customer to enable. In the example of FIG. 5, the web presence items that are not completed by the customer 502, but are completed by the similar customers are outlined to further help identify candidate web presence items to recommend.

The data structure 400 may be configured to collect and store the information about the type of business 402, information about status of web-presence 404, and information about the customer 502 desires for web presence 408. The data structure 400 may be configured to include the web presence items such as email, website, Uniform Resource Locator (URL), host, metadata, site security, social network, and the like.

Information about the status of the web-presence related items completed by other customers may be analyzed to identify candidate web presence items for recommending to the customer 502. For example, the web presence items that have been completed by customers A-F are marked with an “x” below each customer A-F. Customers with a type of customer reference that is similar to the customer 502 for whom the recommendation is being generated (e.g. A, C, D) may be separated out from the customers that are not similar (e.g. B, E, F). In this web-presence item status of only similar customers may be further analyzed. The further analysis may include, among other things, determining which of the web presence items the greatest number of similar customers has completed. In the example of FIG. 5, the “website” web presence item appears to be completed by the greatest number of similar customers so this web presence item may be recommended to the customer 502. This is but one example of how a web presence item may be recommended to a customer.

Some of these similar customers may have been guided to complete one or more of the web presence items (e.g. through a guided workflow as described herein). Alternatively, these similar customers may have completed the items without such guidance.

In a process that may be similar to that described in regards to FIG. 5, methods and system for selection of recommend actions for a customer based on outcomes of similar customers is depicted in FIG. 6. In particular, FIG. 6 presents an algorithm for selection of a recommended next action for improving the web presence of a customer 612 based on at least one of the type of customer, the status of completion of a set of standard actions for establishing a web presence, and outcomes achieved by similar types of customers that took steps not yet completed by the customer 612. Customer data may be retrieved from dataset 400 described in detail in association with FIG. 4 herein. The customer data may be used to provide a next recommended action 610 for improving the web presence of the customer by allowing analysis of the customer status, type, and comparing these aspects of web presence to other similar customers to determine actions taken by the other customers that are not yet taken by the customer 612. Outcomes from these similar customers who have taken actions not yet taken by the customer 612 can be determined (e.g. by a customer outcome generator 608 based on customer data 124) and used to further help identify candidate actions for recommending to the customer 612. Customer information, such as status and type, desires, and the like may be applied to this candidate list (e.g. by a next action recommender 604) to identify, such a by filtering the candidate list, a particular next action 610 to recommend to the customer 612 to improve the customer's web presence.

The example of FIG. 6 includes a data structure 400 that may be configured to store the customer's status of web presence items 404 as described in association with FIG. 5 that may include the customer's status of standard actions 602 for establishing a web presence.

The methods and systems may be configured to include a next action recommender 604 to recommend the next actions to the customer as described herein. The next action recommender 604 may generate the recommended next action for improving the web presence of the customer based on at least one of the type of customer, the status of completion of a set of standard actions for establishing a web presence, the customer's recent action activity, the customer's desires, outcomes achieved by similar types of customers that took steps or actions not yet completed by the customer, and the like.

The information about the steps or actions completed by similar customers may be used to reference customer information from a customer database 124 to preparing information that is relevant to determining customer outcomes. For example, as shown in FIG. 6, the particular customer for whom a recommended next action is being generated and similar customers A, C, and D have completed actions A, C, D, and G. However, these similar customers have also completed actions B, E, F, and H that the particular customer has not yet completed. These additional completed actions can be used to access the customer database 124 to provide information relevant to outcomes to a customer outcome generator 608 to help determine customer outcomes based on these completed actions. The next action recommender 604 may use this outcome information to recommend one or more next actions to the customer 612. The one or more recommended next actions may further be based on the customer type 402 and/or customer desires for web presence 408.

Referring now to FIG. 7, the methods and systems of FIG. 6 can be adapted to provide a recommended path 704 for a customer. In particular, FIG. 7 depicts an algorithm for selection of a recommended path for improving the web presence of a customer based on at least one of the type of customer, the status of completion of a set of standard actions for establishing a web presence, desires of the customer, and outcomes achieved by similar types of customers that took steps not yet completed by the customer.

Customer data may be retrieved from dataset 400 described in detail in association with FIG. 4 herein. The customer data may be used to provide a next recommended path 704 for improving the web presence of the customer 708 by allowing analysis of the customer status, type, desires, and comparing these aspects of web presence to other similar customers to determine actions taken by the other customers that are not yet taken by the customer 708. Outcomes from these similar customers who have taken actions not yet taken by the customer 708 can be determined (e.g. by a customer outcome generator 608 based on customer data 124) and used to further help identify candidate actions for recommending to the customer 708. Customer information, such as status and type, desires, and the like may be applied to this candidate list (e.g. by an improvement path recommender 702) to identify (e.g. by filtering based on customer desires) a particular next path 704 to recommend to the customer 708 to improve the customer's web presence.

The example of FIG. 7 includes a data structure 400 that may be configured to store the customer's status of web presence items 404 as described in association with FIG. 5 that may include the customer's status of standard actions 602 for establishing a web presence.

The methods and systems may be configured to include an improvement path recommender 702 to recommend a path to a customer as described herein. The improvement path recommender 702 may generate the recommended improvement path for improving the web presence of the customer 708 based on at least one of the type of customer, the status of completion of a set of standard actions for establishing a web presence, desires of the customer 708, recent actions taken by the customer 708 outcomes achieved by similar types of customers that took steps or actions not yet completed by the customer 708, and the like.

The information about the steps or actions completed by similar customers may be used to reference customer information from a customer database 124 to preparing information that is relevant to determining customer outcomes. For example, as shown in FIG. 7, the particular customer 708 for whom a recommended improvement path is being generated and similar customers A, C, and D have completed actions A, C, D, and G. However, these similar customers have also completed actions B, E, F, and H that the particular customer 708 has not yet completed. These additional completed actions can be used to access the customer database 124 to provide information relevant to outcomes to a customer outcome generator 608 to help determine customer outcomes based on these completed actions. The improvement path recommender 702 may use this outcome information to recommend one or more web presence improvement paths to the customer 708. The one or more recommended improvement paths may further be based on the customer type 402 and/or customer desires for web presence 408.

As described herein, recommendations for web presence improvement may be based in part on standards, other customer's actions and outcomes, and the like. However, a customer's desires may provide a critical element of filtering of such recommendations so that candidate recommendations may be filtered or prioritized according to client desires that are explicitly expressed or inferred In an example of web presence-related recommendation (e.g. an element, action, path, and the like), a customer may identify marketing as a desire 408. The analysis of similar customers described at least in FIGS. 5, 6, and 7 may suggest recommending one or more of blogging, email, and security for improving the customer's web presence. However, because of the customer's desire for marketing, the candidate recommendations may be filtered based on a relevance of the candidate recommendations to the customer desire of marketing which may result in email being recommended for web presence improvement as it may have a greater likelihood of fulfilling a marketing desire than blogging or security.

Recency of customer actions may also be factored into recommendations for web presence improvements. In an example of recency impacting web presence improvement recommendations, a user's recent actions resulted in publishing a website. Therefore, because the steps that the customer most recently performed related to publishing a website, recommendations for next actions, web presence improvements, paths, and the like may use these recent website publishing actions as an indication for what might be recommended. In another example, if a user's most recent actions were to add blogging capabilities to the user's web presence, a recommended next action might be related to having just initiated such a blogging capability—e.g. to promote the blog.

The methods and systems described herein for web presence recommendations and improvements may also be combined with advertising and/or promotional facilities, such as to enhance the value of a web hosting client to a web hosting provider. At least the final recommendations and/or intermediate results (e.g. candidate recommendations, customer outcomes, and the like) may be used to target promotion of products and/or services (e.g. an on-line shopping cart service, a foreign currency conversion service, a business card product, and the like). Methods and systems for targeting promotional materials, advertisements, and the like may be combined with the methods and systems of web presence improvement recommendation so that promotional materials may be targeted based on factors such as customer desires, and the like. In a basic example, if a recommended next action is to provide security features for a website, website security providers may be promoted to the user that is receiving the recommended next action. A determination of which product and/or service to promote may also be based on analysis of similar customers' responses to such service or promotion. IN this way, not only can similar customers' web presence related actions be analyzed to determine a next recommended action, but those same (or other) customers' actions in response to a promotion (e.g. in response to receiving an email with a link to a website security provider service or product) may be captured and used for various purposes including determining which promotion to provide to the customer.

Methods and systems for providing at least one portable guided workflow for guiding a customer to enable an element of a web presence are depicted in FIG. 8. In particular, FIG. 8 depicts providing at least one portable workflow for guiding a customer through a path of tasks associated with establishing an element of a web presence, wherein upon a customer's performing tasks within the workflow, the element of the web presence is automatically established. Alternatively, FIG. 8 depicts providing a workflow for establishing a customer's web presence, porting the workflow and a link to the logic engine for executing the workflow to a customer's customer, and enabling the customer's customer to use and extend the workflow to establish an element of a web presence. Upon the customer's customer performing tasks within the ported workflow, an element of the customer's customer's web presence is automatically established.

In the example of FIG. 8 customer 804 may generate a customer specific workflow 802 to add a logo web presence element to the customer's web page 808. The workflow may execute on logic engine 110 as described herein to generate the logo web presence element as desired by the customer 804. The customer 804 may configure the customer specific workflow 804 to be a portable workflow that may be ported to customer 804's customer A and/or customer B. Customer A may execute the ported customer specific workflow 802 via the logic engine 110 to place the same logo web presence element that is visible on customer pages 808 onto customer A's web pages 810. Similarly, customer B may use the ported workflow via logic engine 110 to place the logo web presence element on customer B's pages 812. In this way the customer specific workflow 802 may enable a customer's customer to maintain a similar look and feel as customer 804 for at least some web presence elements. The ported workflow may, for example, allow the placement of the logo in a specific location on each of customers A, and B pages, or may allow customers A and B to identify a particular location for the logo. In this way the ported workflow is useable by a customer's customer while enabling a degree of flexibility in establishing the web presence element.

An alternate embodiment of providing a portable work flow may include configuring an automated workflow for use by an automated web presence enablement platform, such as a script-based platform for automatically updating and/or providing web presence elements for users. In an example, customer specific work flow 802 may be ported to automated web presence enablement platform 814 where information such as a user's current web presence elements, indication of web presence interests, web hosting information, and the like may be processed to configure, adapt, and/or provide input to the workflow 802 so that a logic engine, such as the logic engine 110 and/or a web element enablement logic engine associated with the automated web presence enablement platform 814, may process the adapted workflow 802 to provide a web presence element for a user, such as providing a logo on customer “n” web page or pages 818.

FIG. 9 depicts an alternate embodiment of the portable workflow methods and systems of FIG. 8, wherein a portable workflow user interface 902 may be used by customer 904 to generate a portable customer specific workflow 914. The portable workflow user interface 902 may be configured to allow a customer 904 to create workflows 914 for guiding a second customer. The second customer described herein may be, for example, but not limited to, a customer of the customer, a distributor, reseller, a franchisee, subsidiary, foreign office, retailer, service provider, and the like. The portable workflow user interface 902 may allow the customer 904 to create different work flows for enabling different types of web presence elements. For example, the portable workflow user interface 902 may include one or more options to create workflow for web presence elements logo 908, blog 910, others 912, and the like. The logic engine 110 may be configured to process the workflow 914 to improve the web presence of the customer or the customer's customer.

An example of creating a portable workflow for the web presence element type logo 908 is described in detail in FIG. 9. Customer 904 may use the portable workflow user interface 902 to identify one or more web presence elements, such as logo 908. A default workflow may be identified within the user interface 902 for each type of web presence element. By selecting web presence element 908, the portable workflow user interface may direct the user that workflow A will be generated as a portable workflow 914. The portable workflow user interface 902 may further allow the customer 904 to identify other customers (e.g. customer A, customer B, etc) for receiving the portable workflow 914 that enables a logo 908 web presence element. Customer 904, customer A and/or customer B may process the portable workflow 914 via logic engine 110 to enable a logo 908 web presence element on the customer's respective web pages 918, 920, and 922.

The portable workflows depicted in FIGS. 8 and 9 may be generated via the methods and systems for generating a guided workflow for improving a customer's web presence based on an area of improvement for the customer as depicted in FIG. 1.

Similarly the portable workflows depicted in FIGS. 8 and 9 may be generated via the methods and systems depicted in FIG. 2 for generating guided workflows with a central command center that may be associated with a logic engine, one or more web presence enabling platforms, an abstraction layer that may include a user interface for establishing business rules for processing the guided workflow, a host API module, and the like.

Likewise, the portable workflows depicted in FIGS. 8 and 9 may be generated via the methods and systems for generating a workflow with a profile-based wizard as depicted in FIG. 3.
